Just got back from a seven night stay at the sublime Grand Hotel Timeo. From the moment the taxi drove up the long, winding drive past beautiful grounds we knew we had chosen the right spot for our honeymoon. All of the staff greet you, nothing is too much trouble. The view from the breakfast/dinner terrace was the best we... More

This is a truly wonderful hotel with the most magnificent views, great food, plush rooms and authentically Italian. We visited in June for a week and during that time, there were 2 weddings that took place. I completely understand why you might want your wedding reception there but as a hotel guest with a balcony that overlooked the lawn and... More

This hotel is a true Grand Hotel. Amazing location in the middle of Taomina at the entrance of the Greek theatre. The terrace overlooks the entire coastline and the Etna. The pool is beautiful located but a bit small but never mind. Pool staff was very helpful and kind. Food was good. Room was big, although it would have been... More

One of my favorite places that I have ever visited. My husband and I, along with our friends traveled through Europe (Greek Islands, Italy, Monaco and France). Taormina was my favorite. In addition to Taormina being so beautiful and well kept, the people there were so lovely. Everyone was pleasant, friendly and so elegant. We felt embraced and comfortable in... More

It has the perfect appeal of old world charm yet has all the modern conveniences so you are not missing anything. The rooms are spectacular and even our boys loved... More

Room was large, especially for a European hotel. Concierge was exceptional, in both his recommendations, and understanding of specific needs. My only negative would be the fitness center is small and limited. I did mention that in the hotel's survey, and the manager responded that was in their plans to address this winter.

Taormina was our last stop in a three week Italian jaunt and the Timeo was total perfection for relaxing, dining, and feeling well rested for several days. The Hotel has an old world charm and elegance with a staff that is both personable and professional. Our room overlooked the Naxos Bay and had a patio and all the amenities one... More

I loved this hotel, the rooms are very comfortable, well appointed. The restaurant is excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The views are amazing we could see Mount Etna from our window. The location is unbeatable right next to the Amphitheater.
